First of all, I have to admit. I don’t really do much spring cleaning. I clean a lot in the summer when I am off school and a lot during Christmas break. No matter when you clean, these five items should be able to help you out.
- Baking Soda: There are thousands of uses. Usually we associate baking soda with removing odors, but it can be used in cleaning too. Simply sprinkle over a hard surface and wipe clean with a wet rag.
- Old Towels: Cut apart and sew the edges to make dust rags and cleaning rags. This is a great way to get more use out of your old towels and cut down on the use of paper towels.
- Vinegar: Make a half water, half vinegar solution to replace just about any multipurpose cleaner you use around the house. This works great on windows, counters, sinks, etc! In addition, it doesn’t contain the harsh chemicals in other cleaners.
- Dish Soap: This is one that I can usually get for free. :) It is great for the dishes, but also makes a great degreaser. I am forever getting grease on my clothes from mystery places. Dish soap to the rescue. It will also work great on hard to clean areas on the stove top!
- Newspapers: Ok, here is one for all you couponers out there. Newspapers are something we generally recycle, but they are great for cleaning windows and mirros. Simply spray the window with your cleaning and wipe clean with a sheet of newspaper. (My mama taught me this one!)
